This n that @ Viral Infection

I was made aware of the following by the ENT specialist I met, as I had been suffering from cold and severe cough. I just want to mention here the chat of us


** Exercising: He literally told me on my face, “Your life is waste if you can not spend one hour doing exercise”. Fair enough! The things which are not in our control can not be avoided any way. But since, exercising makes one healthy, it shall be taken on priority. As per him, a rigorous exercise of one hour per day is must and should

.

** Body, on it’s own: One shall try to make his body work against all the viruses and bacteria for at least two days before taking medicine, especially anti-biotic. He said “Everything is in your body, let it work on it’s own. If you start giving medicine in the earlier stages of sickness, your body will stay back expecting the same every time, rather than fighting back by generating needed power from with in. Also this is the main cause for the recent ‘Super bug’ virus!


** Pain is subjective: “Pain is subjective” he said when I mentioned that I could not cough anymore as I had been experiencing severe pain when I was coughing. Really, I tried it and it worked. Pain is subjective, mostly. He gave me some examples in which the parties had undergone major operation, but still they could carryon with their works as usual. One should be strong to face anything, and anytime!


** Kids’ health: “If you don’t take care of yourselves at your younger age, you will be solely responsible for any health problems of your children. There will be no mistake of your kids, rather you will be held responsible for all irregularities. So, take care. Especially girls should be doubly careful” he warned.


** Various methodologies: He also suggested me to do steam inhaling twice a day, to drink turmeric milk to avoid cough though it is a very old method, but still it works.


This is it for now. Hope this would help you.

Pramoda,

Following is an article from Chicago Tribune. I thought your readers may be interested in knowing.

Exercise provides a terrific brain boost, as a number of studies have shown. But cardiovascular fitness may trump strength training, according to new research.

The study found that having better cardiovascular health as a teenager was not only to higher scores on intelligence tests but to more education and a higher income years down the road.

Researchers examined data on 1.2 million Swedish men born from 1950 to 1976 who also enlisted for the country's mandatory military service.

They looked at participants global intelligence scores as well as logical, visuospatial, verbal and technical scores. The greater the cardiovascular fitness, the higher the congnitive scores at age 18. The association between muscle strength and global intelligence, in contrast was weak.

The study authors also determined that those who showed cardiovascular fitness improvements from age 15 to 18 had higher intelligence scores than those whose fitness levels dropped. The same results were seen on logical, visuospatial, technical and verbal tests as well.

The study appears in the current edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Science early education.

Keep up good work.
